Information Technology

New and efficient electronic technologies are evolving from science fiction to reality through nanoscience. CNSI scientists and engineers utilize semiconductor materials such as metal oxides, perovskite, and graphene to break the mold in the creation of small, fast, and flexible electronics. These materials will enable progressive information technologies such as quantum computers. Carbon-based and carbon-metal hybrid semiconductors being developed in CNSI core technology centers show promise to vastly improve the performance of data storage circuits, batteries, and electronics in personal devices.

Ever-increasing global demand for faster and more durable information exchange has created a race to develop and commercialize the next generation of information technology platforms. CNSI maintains an international leadership role in the development of exciting new technologies to meet future demand.

Last year, researchers here at Quantinuum, a quantum computing startup, used a chip with eight ytterbium ions to compute the precise arrangement of a hydrogen molecule’s two electrons in their most stable state, out of myriad possible configurations. In and of itself, that computational feat is barely worth noting; a typical laptop can manage it in seconds. But it marked the first demonstration of…
